Operation Christmas Child

Over the years, First United Methodist Church has been involved with Operation Christmas Child by collecting shoebox gifts within the church congregation and by serving as a local drop-off center that collects shoeboxes from other churches and organizations during National Collection Week, the 3rd week each November.

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse that delivers shoeboxes filled with toys, hygiene items and school supplies to children around the world as a tangible expression of God’s love through the hands of local partners to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
